Not gone yet

So that was all just to see if you guys were reading this or not... we're not gone yet.  We thought leaving in the middle of a storm with a leak in the hull, a watermaker spitting parts and an incomplete paint job might not be a good idea.

But now the storm is over, the leak is fixed, the watermaker is producing tasty fresh water and the boat is almost back in the water again (ETA is tomorrow morning).  Saturday is the new departure day.  We're going to skip Ensenada and head straight to Isla Guadalupe.  Our boat is already checked into Mexico and we got our Visas in Tijuana last week, so we really don't need to stop into Ensenada anyway.

Our car is taken care of, spare parts have been purchased, Costco trip completed.  The only thing left to do is fuel up (gas, propane, and diesel), return keys to the marina and final grocery run (veggies and cold stuff).

I had an emotional moment today as I made my last run to Target.  It's right up there with missing your best friends.  Said our final goodbyes (again).

I cannot believe we're finally leaving (fingers crossed)!

Well... We didn't find you at the house when we got home last night, so we're assuming you are safely tucked away in Mexico. When you have a chance, let us know! We miss you already. The house is too quiet with no nightly smackdown... xoxo
